SDB: The Duratray SDB combines impact-resistant, shock absorption features and the abrasion-resistant properties of rubber wear mat and a combination of specialised steels.

Capable of carrying up to 400t, the SDB features a unique lightweight tray that comprises a flexible rubber wear mat supported by an abrasion-resistant steel frame and high-performance synthetic suspension ropes.

The system features a unique design concept that replaces the conventional steel floor, as well as any associated wear plates with a rubber mat suspended on elastomeric ropes anchored to the steel frame of the body.

There are currently more than 1,000 SDBs in operation in more than 37 countries worldwide with a high level of acceptance in large-scale open-pit mineral mines such as bauxite, coal, copper, diamonds, nickel, gold, and iron ore.

SDBs can be used in haulage environments such as large mines, quarries, and underground sites. It is also compatible with a wide range of truck types, including Caterpillar, Komatsu, Liebherr and Hitachi.

The SDB offers a wide range of operational benefits, including:

Reduced weight for an increased payload

Eliminates carry back for decreased fuel consumption

Higher resistance to abrasion

Improved load distribution and centre loading

Low maintenance compared to steel bodies

Reduced risk maintenance tasks, manning in remote locations, loading impact (-40%) and loading noise (-10dB)

XP: The unique lightweight design of the XP Steel Light Dump Body enables clients to optimise payloads and production output, while minimising vehicle weight and maintenance periods.

The tray is made with high-technology steels that enhance the weight of the component, which enables weight reductions of up to 40% and transportation costs per tonne by 25%.

Rubber Liners: Featuring a highly abrasion-resistant, heavy-duty compound, Duratray rubber liners offer a long-lasting, low-maintenance and cost-effective alternative to operations.

Measured wear rates of 3% per 10,000 loads are typical for mine application, giving a wear life of 45,000h-60,000h depending on the abrasion index.

Duratray’s rubber exhibits high-performance elastic and dampening properties, providing rubber components that can absorb and dissipate energy from loading impact without permanently damaging the original capability of the liner.

DuraRail: Customised system for major transportation projects typically used to carry overburden or waste based on the capabilities of the Duratray rubber floor which reduces carry back and increase payload.

Off-Highway Trucks and Articulated Bodies:

Off-Highway Trucks:  Duratray manufactures all types of Off-Highway trucks designed to transport material for long distances over narrow haul roads. The technology used for this design has proven several benefits to mine operations preventing the load from freezing where temperatures reach between -50º to +60º.
